When Devin Haney beat Vasiliy Lomachenko on Saturday (May 20) in their highly anticipated boxing match, it came with a crutch for some. Moreover, after an intense and contested 12 rounds, judges ultimately sided with Haney for the victory. While this came as a shock and travesty to many fans, its impact was such that even some hip-hop notables had to speak out with their take. Two of the most vocal voices in that arena were Boosie Badazz and Nelly, who thought that Loma deserved the crown. However, in Boosie’s case, he even looked past his own benefits from the match-up, as he won money by betting on the San Francisco boxer’s win.
On Twitter, he said, “I F**K WITH HANEY, BUT I JUST WATCH CHAMP LOSE EVERY ROUND OF THAT FIGHT. NO BOXING RIGGED TIMES HAVE CHANGED THIS S**T BOUT MONEY.” He was referring to the fact that no boxing rigging had occurred during the fight. “I won money on Haney, but money can’t make me lie.” “I won money on Haney.” On the other hand, Nelly had a set of remarks that were much less conciliatory in nature, and they were directed not at either athlete in particular but rather at the decision. The rapper, who was born in Austin, revealed his decision to stop boxing in a video posted to Instagram.
“I’m just letting y’all know I am done with boxing,” Nelly shared. “They will never get another motherf***in’ dime out of me. This is a travesty. I am done with boxing. Devin Haney is a very talented boxer. I have nothing against that man, much respect. He was not the better man today. At most, that man got a draw. At most. That man got robbed.” Furthermore, these sentiments echo a lot of discourse online, even though some don’t think it was a complete robbery. Still, the conversation remains hotly contested on either side.

In the meantime, Boosie might just give boxing a shot—that is, if he ever decides to engage in a fight with Charleston White. After their altercation, White stated that he was interested in challenging Bandman Kevo and Anthony Dewberry to a fight for the sum of one hundred thousand dollars. Even though it does not appear to have resulted in anything, it renders some of the Baton Rouge Motorcycle Club’s remarks on the ring somewhat humorous. We’ll have to wait and see if he accepts the challenge at some point in the future.
